AReal superbike simulation as close as you're gonna get!
16 September 2014
Summary: Great Motorcycle racing simulation! It's not as good as the first Superbike World Championship developed in 1999 for the PC Computer but close enough. It takes some you get usrd to the controls and this game has also full customization & full telemetry of the bikes. I recommend this game if you wanna race superbikes but don't wanna eat the real thing when you crash!
Summary: I'm not a "Gamer". I play occasionally. I found this game to be too hard to control. Maybe it's because I've been riding motorcycles for 20 years and I'm expecting the controll to be more realistic. It's fun but not very realistic.
Summary: It's fun, graphics are a little old by now (compared to motogp09/10). I play a lot of motorsports games, but this one challenges me. Very hard to stay on the track which causes more frustration than fun, at times. The settings for the bikes are advanced...like that of a real bike. So you can make it better or really make your bike a mess. This one takes a lot of practice to keep it on the track.
Summary: For years I've been buying motorcycle video games that just seem to have been created by people that have never ridden a motorcycle! And the games based on real world racing series (like MotoGP) seemed like the developers never took an understanding of the sport that they making a game for! This SBK has a lot of depth. Hardcore bike racing gamers should appreciate all of the the advanced options that this game allows. Graphics are decent, sound is excellent.
Summary: I want to start off by saying that I am not a hardcore Superbike fan. I thought this game would offer gameplay similiar to Forza...just for motorcycles. I expected to be able to adjust the bike (beyond just colors etc, but be able to adjust suspension, tire pressure etc) and you can. I expected that many tracks would be available...and there is. I expected decent graphics...and they actually are sub-par. What I did not expect are incessant load screens, which there are.
Summary: I agree with the sentiment of other reviews I've seen, it's a good game but it's a bit outdated (graphics, physics, etc). When you have racing standards like Forza 2 or Gran Tourismo it's hard to pop this game in and be impressed. Heck even Tourist Trophy for the PS2 looked better and it's over 3yrs old. The funny thing is...MotoGP08 (which I also had high hopes for and did NOT like) was developed by the same folks as SBK 08.
